It's Here...The Crazy Teen Years

Everyone warns us about the terrible two’s, but a toddler does not match the strife caused once children hit the terrible teens. Your precious children change from idolizing your every move to leaving you in the dust. Everything is suddenly about them - their friends, their phone, their Facebook. Parents respond by preaching nagging and threatening, often causing teens to feel less respected and become insolent or withdrawn. It is a never ending cycle. Though it is impossible to avoid the tug of war, you can make the days smoother with communication.

But wait, you are just getting started, welcome to the teens' years.  Now when you talk about parenting teens, well, that’s a whole new ball game.  Yes, they can be the sweetest, most loving and sometimes even caring creatures on planet earth, but boy, sometimes our teens will drive us crazy. Yes, I said “CRAZY.”

Hey, relax, many of us, (dare to say I,) drove our parents crazy as well.  Fortunately today, we have wonderful tools and resources to help us in parenting our teens.

I have a wonderful e-book entitled Parenting Teens Special Report.  Much of the information I am sharing with today is included in this book as well.  (Who said nothing is free.) This report discusses important issues such as:

  • Communication Tips
  • Everyday Parenting Tips
  • Step Parenting Tips
  • Entitled Teens Parenting Tips
  • What Actions You Can Take As a Parent

I would love to hear any comments or concerns you may have in parenting your teens.  Sharing information and suggestions are very important in raising teens today.  I agree; it does take a village to help in raising our children.  Sharing ideas and learning new techniques is one way we can help one another in parenting our children. 
Make no mistake, good parents must start in the home.  Your home, my home, as well as our neighbors.  There is an old saying that I heard as a child that said, “The buck stops here.” It’s understandable that many of us parent the way we were parented, but let’s stop and take a look back and see if that parenting style really worked well for us.  And if it did, why is it not working for our teens today?

Our program entitled For Our Kids Parenting and Co-Parenting Services understand your concerns.  Our teen parenting class will provide you with the knowledge; tools and skills needed to parent effectively.  

 We will discuss issues such as:

  • How to encourage teenage independence while using positive discipline techniques.
  • Understanding the adolescent teen.
  • Entering the teen years.
  • Problem-solving and honest communication.
  • Anger management
  • And so much more…
